* The best modern golf clothing
* Upgraded technology and style for 2019
* Shoes, pants, jackets, shorts and more
Golf is no longer reserved for old white guys. Younger people are starting to get into the sport, but sadly, the golf apparel market is slow to catch up.
Like any sport, golf demands the right gear. Even though it’s not explosive or sweat-inducing activity, you still need to be protected from the elements, flexible enough to swing a driver, and stylish enough for a drink at the club bar afterwards.
If you’re looking for some modern, performance-ready golf gear, we’ve got you covered. We rounded up the most sophisticated golf clothing on the market – that doesn’t look like a hand-me-down from your grandpa. Check out our favorite pieces below.
1. Nike Dri-FIT Golf Top
The half-zip sweater is a golf-classic, and Nike just upgraded it with their award-winning Dri-FIT material. It has a sleek, athletic style, and looks best in this go-with-anything black.
2. Nike Vapor Dri-FIT Golf Polo
Modern golf polos should be performance-ready, but still more sophisticated than other athletic shirts. This Nike polo does just that with sweat-wicking fabric and a subtle, stylish print pattern.
3. Travis Mathew Piqué Pocket Polo
If you like a more minimal golf getup, try this polo from Travis Mathew. It features a comfortable heathered knit and subtle touches of color on the placket, cuffs and chest pocket.
4. Nike Flex Golf Shorts
The slim fit and soft, stretchy fabric of these Nike shorts modernizes the golf essential. They also feature a handy textured waistband that keeps your shirt tucked in.
5. Nike Flex Golf Pants
Shorts will be nice once spring comes around, but right now you’ll need some reliable golf pants. We recommend these because they have a modern slim fit and a stretchy, sweat-wicking fabric.
6. Nike Shield Golf Jacket
Don’t let the weather make you stay off the course. This Nike golf jacket offers protection against the elements and a design that helps you stay on your game too.
7. Ecco Hydromax Golf Shoe
These Ecco Hydromaxes look more like office-ready sneakers than classic golf shoes. Plus, they come prepared with a water-repelling treatment and a supportive OrthoLite liner.
8. Nike React Vapor 2 Golf Shoe
Our favorite mash-up of modern style and range-ready technology is the Nike React golf shoe. They’re based off Nike’s best-selling React sneaker that we’ve been seeing all over Instagram, but they also provide serious performance on the course with springy React foam and Nike’s Reliable Traction technology.
